February 2, 2010

Today I am grateful for diligence.  Eli woke me up at 4:00 a.m. yet again, and when it came around to doing my morning chores, I was really lacking motivation and energy.  But I MADE myself follow through.  I have realized in life that it's easy to talk yourself out of doing some things, "just because you're tired", or any other numerous excuses, but in the end . . . when you put one foot in front of the other and press onward, you will feel better about yourself and your accomplishment(s), if you "JUST DO IT".  (Gotta love Nike ads.)

Getting up at 4:00, didn't seem to faze Mr. Attitude.

He stayed busy right up until 4:30 p.m.

Saving the world with his Super Eli cape.  But even super heroes get sleepy (THANK GOODNESS!).  It gave me enough time to catch up on things and get my layout for the day done.  I believe we'll be heading to bed a little earlier tonight and hopefully the little stinker will sleep a little longer in the morning.


  1. Who's been teasing this little fellow? He's showing a lot of emotions on these shots.

    Tiredness is bad, but its part of life and we shouldn't let it bring us down, but sometimes we have to take some time off and relax.

    Once again, beautiful photos.
